a Poem by Raquel Swann

You say you fear me,

Perhaps it’s not me,

But an idea,

Wedged between your heart and mind.

I’m not for turning sand into water,

Nor ash into air.

For that would be extraordinary

And such things should be feared.

Our eyes must never meet

even in a glance.

Just a feint touch of my skin to yours

Should be outlawed.

Close your doors


And walls.

Give in to your fear,

So you will get to hold your

Feelings inside forever.
